“A judge” ordered that a recall election be put on the ballot in Lee’s Summit despite a determination by Jackson County election officials that some signatures had been faked on the recall petition (5/16, Local, “Two face petition forgery charges; Lee’s Summit residents allegedly faked signatures on a petition to recall a City Council member”).
Why isn’t the name of this judge reported?
Election fraud is very serious business. Perhaps The Star should investigate the purported election abuses that former U.S. attorney Todd Graves declined to pursue rather than try to foment a furor over his dismissal.
Kudos to the citizenry of Lee’s Summit and their Police Department as well as to Jackson County Prosecutor Jim Kanatzar for taking their responsibilities to defend the integrity of the election process seriously.
